Title:  Yiayia and the Prosphoron

What it’s about: Three siblings and their Yiayia making Prosphoron together.  It shows the steps they take to make it from beginning to end.  It also includes an activity, wonderful kid friendly information on Prosphoron, the recipe, and the prayers to read.

What we love about it: The really lovely illustrations, and they very cute extra details throughout the book. We love how the story simplifies something that can seem overwhelming to both children and adults.  How it is a powerful and meaningful teaching tool, that can be used to help children feel empowered to make Prosphoron.  Lastly we love how children can relate to the characters and understand the steps; as the book guides them through the process of making something so special.
